Tuesday, 26 August 2008

Scott joined the team in October 2006 whilst only 16 years old, and he has improved dramatically since that time.

His first introduction to pro running was at VRTA Epping where he watched and then he ran in the U/21 race which he won.  He did the same at Northcote where he again won the U/21 race.

At Maryborough in lined up in his first official pro race being the Novice 70m which he went on to win.  He then lined up in the 120m Gift where he was lucky to get through the semi finals to make the final via fastest times.

In the final he ran his best race to that point in his life and won convincingly from 7m to become the youngest ever winner of the Maryborough Gift.

He is a member of the Ringwood Athletic Club.


Scott had many personal problems and this required much life changing moments.  He therefore lost the desire to train and compete with far more pressing needs to be focussed upon.  He is retired from all forms of athletics until he gets other life issues in place. After about 12 months off Scott has resumed running close to where he is living in Box Hill and is now a member of Box Hill Athletic Club.

Tuesday, 26 August 2008

Josh was a newcomer to athletics when he joined the team as a 16 year old and had never competed in athletics before, with the exception of school events.  He has now improved dramatically and has recorded good results over distances including 70m, 100m and 120m in the pros, and 100m and 200m in amateur competition.

His pro debut was this season 05/06 at VRTA Epping in the 70m.  Later that day he competed in the U/21 sprint where he finished 3rd.

He has had extensive exposure to amateur racing to develop his confidence and place him in different race environments to handle pressure during different stages of the given event.  He continues to show maturity with his great willingness to learn. 

Josh made his first final at Maryborough in the 70m Novice finishing 6th.  He also made the semi finals of the 70m Open that day.

He has had numerous successes since then and has devloped into a very good sprinter despite constant interuptions with a back problem.

He finished 4th in the Stawell GIft final of 2010, and later that season finished 3rd in the richest ever Ballarat Gift.

He is a member of the Ringwood Athletic Club.

Former Athlete Profile - (Retired) Shane McKenzie PDF Print E-mail
Written by Nick Fiedler   
Tuesday, 26 August 2008

Shane has had an extensive career in both amateur and pro ranks.  Shane dominated South Australian 100m running for an extensive period and also was highly successful in the pro ranks.  He had a close affiliation with the Flinders Club in SA.  Some of his success includes winning the Bendigo Gift and Mt.Gambier Gift, and also making 4 Bay Sheffield Gift Finals (2 x Runner Up to Capobianco and Brimacombe respectively).

Shane had a complete year off athletics four years ago where he concentrated on bobsleigh where he represented Australia in numerous events in both 4 man and 2 man competition.  in 2009 he has commenced another campaign to be part of the next WInter Olympics where he hopes to be part of the 4 man bobsleigh team.

Shane joined the team in the pre season of 04/05.  He missed the beginning of the season due to bobsleigh committments overseas but did manage to get a few amateur races in before he left including numerous runs over 100m into a headbreeze where he clocked 10.7HH.  After returning from overseas he returned to make the Bay Sheffield Gift Final.  He continued his good form running 2nd in the Rye 70m.  He backed that form up winning the Ringwood 70m Open the next week.  He then went on to be runner up in the Wangaratta Gift and had a purple patch at Keilor where he won the 70m and was runner up in the Gift to Ezenwa in a tight dip on the line.

Shane finsished competition at Stawell 2010 after 20 years of competition and now intends to pursue coaching.

 He competed in the Winter Olympics as the brakeman in the bobsleigh in 2006.

In 2007 he played Rugby League for the Waverley Panthers in the VRL and has scored six tries from nine games including a 95m try.  In his first game he suffered severe concussion and in his last game he dislocated a finger.  At the commencement of the 2008/2009 track pre season he stopped his rugby training to allow his ageing body more recuperative time for athletics training.

At the 2007/2008 Bay Sheffield he was inducted into the Bay Sheffield Hall of Fame.

He is a member of the Ringwood Athletic Club.

After not running for about 8 years and focussing mainly on coaching Shane approached Nick in Season 17/18 to again start training for Season 18/19. He has resumed competition in Season 18/19 and he has been enjoying the competition.

Monday, 25 August 2008

Celia joined the team at the completion of season 03/04 after being disgruntled with her training program at Melbourne University.  She had close ties with her former Geelong Coach Mandy Cole who recommended that she join Nick Fiedler.  She joined the team with no requirement to change clubs and continued to run for Melbourne University. Eventually she came disgrunteled with Melbourne UNiversity and changed clubs to join Ringwood Athletic Club.

She made her pro debut at Essendon in the Womens 100m despite being a 800m and 1500m runner. 

She has a close bond with some of the Geelong distance runners, such as Graham Watkins and Mark Boxer because that was her home town, and she sometimes completes training sessions in Geelong or Ballarat where her parents now live.

She had dramatic improvement over 400m in season 06/07 finding winning from from a mark she previously couldn't make finals from.

She is versatile and has even won bronze medals in the Victorian CAhmpionships in the 400m Hurdles and Mile.

Celia suffered a bad break to a bone near her knee when hurdling in season 2009/2010 and missed the majority of the season.

Former Athlete Profile (Retired) - Alice Platten PDF Print E-mail
Written by Nick Fiedler   
Monday, 25 August 2008

Alice joined the squad after running in amateur competition with Springvale.  She approached Nick Fiedler hoping to change coaches after being disgruntled with her performances whilst at Springvale.  She was ultimately accepted and joined the squad and Ringwood AC.  She arrived as a 400m runner who had not broken 62secs for 400m, or 27secs for 200m.   She stated that she did not like 100m races but she was told that they were a fundamental aspect of 400m preparation.

She has made massive improvements over all distances including the 100m where she has run PB's every season since joining.  She has also been persuaded to embrace the 800m as another potential event and she has now adapted to that event aswell to improve her event range.  She has continued to improve her PB's over every distance from 100m to 800m every season since joining and is now a nationally ranked 400m and 800m runner.

She has fitted in well to the team since joining, albeit, sometimes she needs to watch how much noise she makes, she is definately a social butterfly.  She has taken on the role of a being the team social secretary and is quite often responsible for finalising the team uniforms and outings.


After many seasons she then added the 1500m to her list of events which she has the versatility to compete at a high level. 

Alice battled injury for nearly 2 years before changing squads in late 2017 to train with a squad that is closer to her lifestyle commitments.

In winter 2018 she returned to the squad and despite some injury concerns is now re-establishing her stride and speed endurance.
